Don’t Should on me

‘You shouldn’t ‘save’ that one because…..
‘Probably lame.’
‘Just going to die on you.’
‘Too old’.
‘Too thin.’
‘Too chancy.’
‘You can’t save them all.’
‘That one probably wouldn’t ship to slaughter anyway.’
‘Must be something wrong with that one.
‘Someone else will do it. ‘

I hear this often . ‘You should not save that horse because ( insert reason here. )
While a small part of me see understand the pessimism and SOMETIMES truth of the ‘reasons why not’, I have seen far more good outcomes than bad to not ‘take the chance’.
There is much I could say on this subject, but honestly. I’ll let the horses do the ‘talking ‘ on this one.
Below are just a FEW of the horses I was told I ‘shouldn’t save’…….
I, and they, beg to differ.
I have no disillusions that I can ‘save them all’……
But to the one horse, every time they get a second chance,….
To them , it is ‘all. ‘
So do tell me, which one of these horses I should not have saved?
I couldn’t choose .
If you can, perhaps I do no want to know you at all.

With this said…..
Indeed, do not ‘should’ on me.
